Hello. My name is***** you charge the battery/ Have you checked that all the battery cable connections are tight?Clicking is either a bad connection, low battery, bad battery cables or defective start relay.In order of issues. Low battery, corroded or loose batt connections, bad relay and finally bad cables. If you have checked all cable and connections and the battery is good we will need a volt meter to do some tests.Post back with questions and findings.
